Paleoclimate and Sedimentology Research Group

Overview

The Paleoclimatology and Paleoecology Research Group focuses on deciphering paleoclimates and paleoenvironments on different time scales ranging from the past centuries to the Neogene using sclerochronological, geochemical, and micropaleontological multi-proxy approaches. Our highly interdisciplinary research is conducted in close collaboration with biologists, oceanographers, and climate physicists.
